Project Overview

As we enter the third term of Nottingham BID, plans are firmly in place to start delivering the goals we set out in our business plan.

We will be focusing on the four key strategic areas that have already seen great success in recent years - those being Promoted City, Managed City, Working City and Independent City.

Businesses told us that they valued the vast majority of the projects and services we delivered during the last term, so they will continue, but we will ensure they are delivered in ways that make them fit for our new normal.

There will be plenty of opportunities for BID businesses to get involved with projects, initiatives and activities and visitors to the city centre can look forward to more great events that Nottingham BID helps organise and fund, including the hugely successful Nottingham Ale Trails, Halloween family fun event as well as a Christmas campaign.

In addition to this we are setting out a series of exciting transformation projects that move beyond short term interventions and into long term investment into the progression of our city. These ambitious improvements come at a crucial time to ensure Nottingham comes through this recovery period as a city that businesses can thrive in, appeals to the local community and raises our profile nationally.
